EIPHC President’s Notes, August 2018

I wondered what Parrot Heads and Parrots might have in common other than Jimmy Buffet! After a little research, I discovered that parrots scream, sometimes bite and they’re messy! They are very social creatures and mostly live in flocks. Parrots communicate with others in the flock with vocalizations and by shaking their tail feathers. They can come in multiple colors, greens, reds, yellows, blues, orange, even a combination of all of them.

There you have it! Can you see the similarities in the EIPHC PHlock? We are loud, persistent, and occasionally bite off more than we can chew, and we are known to be messy! We’re about as social as you can get and love to PHlock. We speak the same language when our diverse and colorful group come together to work and play. Lastly, shaking the tail PHeathers is our PHavorite pastime! Okay, so we’re not perfect! But, we sure are beautiful! We have accomplished so many goals throughout these 16 years. Our talent and strength as a PHlock make us unstoppable. Thank you all for being a part of the magic we spin!

New birds are encouraged and welcomed to join the EIPHC PHlock. Please visit our website at and sign up online or look for our membership table at the next PHlocking, Friday, September 7, 2018. Be sure to check out our calendar for more events and join us as we “Party with a Purpose!” Jan


James and Cris thank all of you who volunteered and participated in the Pelican Island Parrot Head Party yesterday. It was a blast from the beginning until the end (ended a bit early due to approaching thunder storms). Everyone played together “come rain or shine” and some funny stories will be shared. Again, the Parrot Heads proved to be amazingly determined to have a great time anywhere, anytime! Real Fruitcakes!

We have attempted to list all who volunteered, but if you are not listed, just know that you are appreciated as always for making this happen. Here we go…thanks to Carol, Richard, Jimi, Nicole, Bobbi, Jeanne, Jason, Steve, Val, Leonard, Gary, Donna, Jan, Kathy, Matt and and both Joshes for clearing and cleaning the island, purchasing and preparing the food, grilling the meat, gathering and disbursing the waivers, running the shuttles, providing the games and prizes, digging holes and setting up tents, loading and unloading the boats, and saving the DJ from the rain (a big one)! Special thanks to DJ Robbie for his great tunes and tropical attitude! PHINS UP!!!

Host a Phlocking…

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great summer!!!
I am presenting the opportunity for you and your friends to host one of our remaining PHlockings. Available dates are…Sept. 7th, Oct. 5th, and Nov. 2nd (As always, 1st Friday of each month @ 7pm). Hosting a PHlocking is as simple as choosing a local charity and raising $$$ by selling 50/50 raffle tickets?!?
Please contact me if you’re interested. Thanks all,
